    great to expand hard drive for PS4

    If you are looking for a good hard drive to upgrade your PS4 look no further, this is the one you need (5400RPM is recommended, and the drive needs to be 2.5 inch) When I purchased my PS4 when it first came out, the unit that came in my PlayStation 4 500GB Best Buy Bundle. At the time I thought it was too much and that I would never see the day I'd run out of space. Well, after downloading all kinds of things from the PSNetwork (videos, dlc, games) the day finally came several months ago. I backed up as many things as I could on external drives but dlc and game installs kept using disk space until I was left with about 3 free gigs. With the price of the drives compared to a new PS4 it was a difficult decision, especially since there was a 1TB Hybrid SD HD that I was thinking of purchasing. After some research on the size of the drives, maximum capacity of the PS4 and other related topics, I ended up finding this drive in Amazon. After reading some of the reviews here I decided I would go for the 2TB drive. While I was researching on the web, I found a lot of different stories and assumptions on whether or not the fat PS4 was capable of handling a 2TB drive as well as some reports indicated formatting the drive would take between 14 to 60 hours! So this is how it went for me: I backed up the PS4 data using the Backup feature under System Tools, it took about an hour and a half to backup a little over 60 gigs. Removing the hard drive and replacing it could not have been easier (I struggled a little finding the right screwdriver though) and it took about less than 5 minutes; there are plenty of videos available in you tube that tell you how to do this. Once replaced, I started the PS4 and it immediately asked me to format the drive (I installed the drive out of the box), it literally took less than a minute to format a 2TB drive! After that, I went to system tools and restored my backup from my external drive, another hour and a half. So, as another reviewer confirmed, it took less than four hours to upgrade both hardware and software. Results so far have been great, I immediately started downloading more games and demos, space is no longer an issue! (for now, I guess) The PS4 does recognize the 2TB capacity as opposed as to what many websites indicated. For those concerned about the brand I would suggest you play it safe and go with Seagate, the original 500 gig drive I removed from my PS4 was a Seagate as well, no issues whatsoever in the four years I used it! Another happy upgrade! Hopefully there will be 3 or 4TB drives in the near future then it will be another happy upgrade!

    We all know that 500Gb for the PS4 is only enough for Year 1. This is a perfect replacement drive for the PS4. Replacing the drive itself is a 10 minute effort. Here is the trick you need to know to make it virtually painless. In Settings > System there is a new menu choice, Backup and Restore. If you can get a big enough USB drive to connect to your PS4, do a Backup to it. It saves EVERYTHING except for Trophies. When you do a Restore you are 100% ready to go just like you left it. Because you don't hear much about this menu choice, and to save some time, I went ahead and deleted most of my APPS. That left me with just 120Gb to copy. 75 minutes to backup, 75 minutes to restore and I was ready to go. Knowing what I know now, I'd have kept a few more Apps, extended the backup/restore time but wouldn't have had to redownload the update patches on the games I deleted.

    Pre-ordered a lot of new games for my PS4 and felt some of them would be large installs. The Beta for Destiny is already 15GBs. And a leak earlier today showed The Last of US Remastered at 50GBs. Stock hard drive would get small pretty fast! Installed in under 15 minutes! Been using Seagate HDs for years. PS4 performance seems to be about the same except I have over 1800GBs of storage after the OS and formatting is done! Thats a lot of games and now i won't have to worry about replacing the hard drive later after i have all these new games. Take care of an upgrade now before there's a run on new large games being released! Think about how big Destiny, Uncharted 4, Mass Effect 4, GTA 5, etc will be!!!

    Great PS4 HDD

    I picked up this 2tb HDD to replace the stock 500 gig HDD in the PS4. Had a little bit of an issue getting it to work properly with all my games but took some time to back up all my save files from my other HDD so I could transfer them to the new one once installed. Once I installed the update it booted up no problem and was able to download every game I own which was over a Terabyte in data and around 60 games. After that I noticed the games were downloaded and the updates but it was locking me out of certain parts of the game. To fix that I just put the PS4 in safe mode again and there's an option that lets you reaccept all the terms and agreements for all you're games which was why it was locking me out. Now everything works amazing and I still have a full terabyte of space left so I'm looking forward to not having to worry about deleting games just to make room for dlcs anymore. For $91 you can't go wrong with this it works just like the original just four times the memory.

    I bought it to upgrade a 750GB Seagate Momentus XT drive that was running out of space. This drive has great capacity. I would have preferred an SSD but, that would have pushed the price close to 10 times what I paid for this drive. I wanted a drive large enough to support multiple OS that still had enough capacity for maintaining all the necessary files and applications on the separate OS partitions. This drive fit the bill perfectly. Later as the price for larger SSD drives continue to drop I can just add this drive to an external case for additional space. PROs: Large Capacity Price Up to 6GBs SATA and also backward compatible to 3GBs SATA Works for Windows, Apple (running OS X and Intel Processors), and Linux NCQ (Native Command Queuing) efficient organization to incoming commands to increase performance. CONs: Speed: this drive only comes with a drive speed of 5400RPM Boots slower than my old Hybrid drive. Not an SSD or Hybrid drive yet.

    Replaced my 750gig hard drive with this 2TB Seagate in my Toshiba Laptop SATELLITE P775-S7215. The original drive worked fine, just need more space. Used Acronis backup software which came with my Western Digital 3TB USB drive to back up, making a complete image. Also made a bootable Acronis DVD (you need this). Swapped hard drives, booted with the Acronis DVD I made and followed the prompts. The backup came off my WD 3TB USB drive and went right on the unformatted 2TB Seagate drive flawlessly. Acronis software also gets a 10. The first reboot was a bit slow must have had some stuff going on the the background, after that all normal. The system is a true copy of everything. It was a seamless migration to the larder drive, all programs there. Drive seems to be a little faster than what it replaced. The data transfer took about 2 hours.

    Excellent PS4 hard drive upgrade

    After about a year I had easily hit the 500GB hard drive that comes standard on the PS4, so I figured it was time for an upgrade. After looking up various reviews, I decided to go with a 2TB HDD found this on sale during Black Friday. It works extremely well and easily fits into the narrow PS4 hard drive slot. Now I have extra space and speed on my PS4 and have recommended this product to several friends. IGN has a great guide to installing a hard drive into your PS4 and it only takes about 1/2 hour. Just make sure you have a computer with internet and a 2.0 USB stick with at least 1GB memory.

    This is a fantastic internal harddrive for my laptop. My laptop came with only a 1 TB harddrive in addition to a 250 gb SSD (the OS is on the SSD). This was pretty much the only option that Alienware would give (really, Alienware? If I'm spending $3000-$4000, how about something better than a 1 TB 5200 rpm internal harddrive, ok????). Installation was a breeze (this will depend on your laptop, of course). Before installing it, I put it into an external enclosure and formatted it and backed up stuff on it, so that when I installed it in my laptop and booted things up, it was good to go. Not a bad way to do that, at all, in my opinion. This harddrive is very fast and just about the biggest capacity that you can get for a laptop without needing a larger bay for Toshiba's 3 TB variety.
